Switch formations.


Publisher EA has confirmed its FIFA game for Nintendo Switch is indeed FIFA 18.

Chief competition officer Peter Moore told Gamereactor, "We are custom-building a FIFA version for the Nintendo Switch. It will be FIFA 18, and it will obviously be later this year when FIFA 18 comes out."

Soon after FIFA was announced for Switch, rumors emerged that the Nintendo version would be based on the edition that comes out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Moore responded at the time by saying FIFA would be "custom-built for Nintendo Switch." When Gamereactor asked Moore if the Switch version would be closer to the PS4/Xbox One or to the PS3/Xbox 360 versions, Moore replied, "What you have will be a custom-built version for the Nintendo Switch from the FIFA development team in Vancouver."

EA CEO Andrew Wilson recently said that "FIFA 18 will build on the foundation we created with story mode this year, bringing players back to The Journey with Season 2, featuring new characters and new storylines."

The Journey was a story-driven adventure introduced in FIFA 17 that sees you follow a young footballer called Alex Hunter. It featured dedicated characters, cutscenes, and appearances from real-life players and managers.

We thought Season 1 of The Journey succeeded in "attaching an added emotional weight to your actions on the pitch." To find out more, read our full FIFA 17 review. For more on Nintendo's upcoming console meanwhile, check out all the games confirmed to be coming to Switch.
